Tübingen School.

Two theol. trends at U. of Tübingen, Ger. The theol. faculty was conservative till G. C. Storr* founded the so-called Old Tübingen School, which was continued by J. F. and K. C. Flatt* and F. G. Süskind* and advocated a Bible-based but rationalistic supernaturalism. The Later (or Younger, or New) Tübingen School, traced to F. C. Baur,* was more rationalistic and included, e.g., A. B. C. C. Hilgenfeld,* F. C. A. Schwegler,* K. H. v. Weizsäcker,* and E. Zeller.* See also Isagogics, 3; Lutheran Theology After 1580, 12.
